  • Publication number: 20240189776
    Abstract: A membrane module including at least one sidewall, at least one end wall, and at least one interior volume between the at least one sidewall and the at least one end wall is described. At least one port assembly disposed on the at least one sidewall includes a port aperture in fluid flow communication with the at least one interior volume, extending substantially perpendicular to a longitudinal axis, through a lower port aperture portion and an upper port aperture portion. At least one fastener is adapted to draw an upper face of the upper port aperture portion toward a lower face of the lower port aperture portion and secure the upper face to the lower face, thereby causing an o-ring to be pressed against the other of the upper face and the lower face around an entire perimeter of an o-ring recess in which the o-ring is disposed.

  • Patent number: 10663279
    Abstract: Metal film thickness can be determined using the sheet resistance, resistivity, and temperature coefficient of resistivity for the metal film. Variation in film thickness measurements caused by resistivity can be reduced or eliminated. A probe head may be used for some of the measurements of the metal film. The probe head can include a temperature sensor used during sheet resistance measurements. A wafer on a chuck is heated, such as using the chuck or the probe head, for the measurements.

  • Patent number: 10578476
    Abstract: A three dimensional (3D) printing system includes an ink cartridge providing ink to a printhead and a controller. The ink cartridge also includes a flag material and a sensor component. The ink has a low dielectric constant and defines an upper surface having a vertical position defining an ink level. The flag material has a high dielectric constant and is disposed upon the upper surface of the ink. The sensor component includes a vertical arrangement of electrodes proximate to the ink. The controller is coupled to the sensor electrodes and is configured to: (1) scan sensor electrodes to determine a capacitance between adjacent pairs of electrodes, (2) identify at least one pair of electrodes having a peak capacitance value relative to capacitance values of remaining pairs of electrodes, and (3) estimate the ink level based upon the identification.
